you have a point there. but i consider "the meat" of almost any show the second set jam suites, especially in the later years when there were far fewer 1st set extended jams or surprises. so i guess i tend to rate a show based on the strength of these jam suites. i think, for example, the 4/24 scarlet>fire is much stronger than this one.

and again i see your point, i am potentially skipping over some worthy music, and not rating the show as a entire event which has an ebb and flow, highs and lows, etc., that can have an effect on the enjoyment of the music. which is a bit close minded of me i suppose.

I would totally agree that the meat in 72, 73, 74 shows tended to be in a pocket if the second set. The first sets I have heard some describe as warmups in those days. With the rapid explosion of new songs during that period There is sense of 'sitting through' more of the first set of sometimes standard readings.
